    What are some of the best springs to put on a non4x4 toyota tacoma doublecab? I heard Bilstein is very good choice. Anybody ever put any of thier springs on?

    To the OP, are you referring to leaf springs or shocks?

    What are you looking to do?

    Lift or lower

    Race or off road or Daily driver?

    In most cases better shocks will fix your issues...

    I know I didnt start this thread but I do have a questions about springs haha

    I have an 01 double cab 4x4 trd with 156k miles on it and when i haul my 4wheeler in the bed or if i have alot of weight on the tongue of a trailer my rear end tends to bottom out on the bump stops. My thoughts are the springs have done there due time for some new ones.

    Where and what should I look for. Dont really want to add any lift to it right now just looking for a better ride.

    I used ICON's 4 pack and added it to my exising 3 pack. Not having any driveability issues, but I have noticed that one side is about 3/8" higher than the other now?!? I think eventually I will want to replace the whole spring pack, so interested in what everyone else recommends also....

    you can get a new set of wheelers rear springs form wheelers offroad...........they are stock height springs made by alcan. if you ever want a little lift, you can get their 5 pack, and i still have the trd coils off my double cab that will help you a little.

    forgot to add....i put my new suspension in a few weeks back. i went with wheelers 5 pack springs(alcan...made for wheelers) and a set of ome 881 coils up front. i achieved a mild bit of lift from it, but the ride is so much better now.
